all about color {7 ways to decorate with aqua}

It’s feature day around here … and this color thing is really addicting, right?!?!!

It was so much fun to go through all of the links at the party (check them out here), and it has me dreaming of color.  And, more specifically, aqua.  I am in love.  I want to paint this little breadbox floor to ceiling in it and I want to decorate the entire house with it and I even want every meal we eat to be aqua …
decorate with aqua

…maybe not that last one.  But it is a great color, isn’t it?!?!  The perfect combo of blue and green and can you look at it without thinking the Caribbean Sea?  I can’t, and these gals have started creating my dream aqua home.

Click on the pictures to go to those specific posts and click on the blog name to go to the blog homepage.  Either way … check ‘em out!  :)

I could definitely enjoy my coffee in this cozy breakfast nook that Jessica at Mom 4 Real created.


And then I’m heading over to have lunch with Jaye from Just Tryin’ to Make Sense of it all on her patio!


Then maybe some afternoon tea with Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane.


This little table looks like it belongs in my new living room.  :)  But it’s actually At Home on the Bay with Mary.


I don’t think you could help but be happy with that great laundry room color by Beth from Unskinny Boppy.


Would you dare go Calypso Blue on your front door like Amy from Eat. Sleep. Decorate. did?  She has me wanting to do it.  :)


Now, I know this chair is blue.  It says ‘true blue chair’ right on it.  But I love it.  And think I need an aqua one by my front door.  The perfect pop of color by Heidi from Decor and More.


Great, huh?!?  Do you, too, love aqua?  What is your favorite color?

For everyone who came by and linked up or just perused the inspiration, Thank you!!  I think it’s fun to have a party around here every once in a while.

  1. oh my island girl friend…what a perfect choice for the girl that looks at that gorgeous ocean each day!!! to tell you the truth i was thinking in the same direction : ) lol!!!! LOVE the choices and they look soooooooooooooooooooooooo fabulous together! WOW!!!! Awesome in Aqua they are! sending colorful hugs and waves of fun for the day! Give that M&M furry team a big hug from us all! : )

  2. Of course you love aqua – you stare at the aqua sea every day! My favorite color varies from day to day!!
    Great features!

  3. Awww … thank you for the feature Karah! I don’t know how you were able to pick – there were so many amazing projects at the party!

  4. Love all of these. In fact these might help me out in the future because my hubs has put the caboosh on painting any more rooms blue in the house (in his defense, 5 out of 7 rooms that we’ve redone have been in blue) but it’ll be good to figure out how to incorporate blue into rooms in other ways!

  5. I love aqua! That table with the fan is beautiful.

    I love color but “the blues” are my go to and fav. You guys came up with a great theme for a link party and I hope we’ll see this party theme again because it was filled with so much inspiration. Thanks so much for hosting.


  7. You are too cool for school, my friend! It was so fun to see my little picture featured! Thank you! There were some amazing color projects to choose from – not sure how you narrowed it down!

    And you are so lucky you get to see that color all around you every day! I swear, I could stare out into the Caribbean sea until my retinas burned out! Just can’t get enough of that view!

  8. Your aqua themed features are amazing … I mean, who wouldn’t want some Caribbean ocean in their homes? I’m inspired!



  9. EEEEks! Thank you so much for featuring my breakfast nook…I’m doing the happy dance! I am having aqua overload over here…I just can’t get enough!

  10. Yowza, I am honored to be included in such talented company!! Yes, can’t get enough aqua — love every single one of your features. Thanks for including me, Karah!!

    I do love aqua. If I had not been so all about the Olympics….I think I would have chosen Aqua as my go to color :)


  12. Aqua melts my heart, and these projects make my knees weak! I love them all! This has been such a great party!!!

  13. I LOVE this color, and all those projects are awesome. The blue shutter in the kitchen nook is flippin sweet!

    Gonna have to start dyeing fabric. Aqua of course.

  15. Oh yeah, I’m totally diggin’ aqua :-) It’s such a fresh & happy colour, and the fact that it reminds me of water is an added bonus :-)

    All the projects you featured are geat. I painted our front door a colour similar to Calypso Blue (Sherwin Williams Oceanside). I LOVE IT! It’s great when your front door colour makes you smile every time you leave the house or come home :-)

  16. As a matter of fact I am in the process of painting a chair aqua…Valspar, “Well Water”….I love seeing the colors of the 50′s coming back…now, one who loves Aqua and I have dubbed her “Aqua Woman” is Anne from Design Dreams by Anne….talk about lots of aqua!!….Great features Karah!!! So many beautiful “aqua inspirations”…

  17. I love it all! I need more pops of color in my house =)

  19. Mmmm! I love me some aqua! It’s such a pretty and happy color :)

  20. Zoe says:

    I use loads of splashes of aqua around my house…it is just such a relaxing color.
